Russell is a regenerative designer and inventor based in Bali, Indonesia. He is one of the leaders of the Ecobrick movement in Indonesia and the world. Inspired by the principles of the mandala and his time amongst the Igorot people he works to implementing deep, trans-formative innovations. With ecobricks, Russell’s creativity is focused on putting ‘waste’ back into cycles of indefinite use. Meanwhile, moving forward with innovations that, using natural materials and ancestral manual traditions, are fully open source, non-capital, and transcend waste, petroleum and factories all together. You can read more in his Regenerative Design Manifesto or follow him on Facebook:

The Evolution of the Flying Disc
I love throwing the disc around. With my friends we’ve come up with one that transcends plastic and petroleum.
Bottle Building & Innovation
I love making stuff with bottles. Because they are everywhere, we can innovate techniques that anyone anywhere can put to use.
